If you're a hardened member of the gametastic world, you'll know the deal here. There are so effing many retailers competing for our game purchases now, each in need of a way to sweeten their own deal. How? With pre-order bonuses, free plastic shit we don't want, soundtracks, figures, art books, DLC and other such shenanigans.
With big name releases, this tends to get a little out of control. Watch Dogs, for instance, offered more exclusive editions than you could shake your exasperated wallet at. Dead Sec edition, Vigilante edition, Gold edition, Uplay Deluxe edition... there was too much mothereffin' Watch Dogs going on right here.
But that's nothing. Check out this little slice of crazy-ass from Halo 5: Guardians.
Microsoft don't have time to dick around with that sort of thing. Such deals are only for the lowly hobo companies who don't have Bill Gates' mighty cashtacular behind them. These guys are striding right in with their $250 dollar box of mysteries.
Consider this the ultimate, hardcore, super mega ultra check-me-out-with-my-disposable-income-and-huge-cannonball-testicles, manly man's edition of Halo 5: Guardians. ‘It's $150 more expensive than the limited edition,' quoth Destructoid, ‘...and Microsoft only says it includes "everything in the limited edition, as well as additional content such as a commemorative numbered statue."'
Money well spent, we're sure, if you fancy getting your pre-order on a year in advance.
